San Diego, CA (February 7, 2011) - Fast Forward Event Productions announces the launch of its new daily gourmet deals and discoveries website and newsletter, "Treat du Jour." Wine, spirits, gourmet food, culinary and travel enthusiasts will have access to a daily deal or discovery in which they can purchase, review, sample and be first "in the know" on a phenomenal variety of luxury goods and services, from hand crafted wines to unique gourmet foods, said Michelle Metter, partner at Fast Forward Event Productions.

"Although in the past Fast Forward has focused primarily on new event launches and management, Treat du Jour is the perfect fit for our ever-growing client list of brands and consumer enthusiasts," added Metter." Treat du Jour allows us to offer current event exhibitors and sponsors the opportunity to communicate with their target audience on a more creative and personal level year-round."

Treat du Jour will work with previous and current exhibitors, sponsors and other participants from Fast Forward Event Productions' annual events by bringing consumers a daily deal or product discovery directly from the participating brands. Each day of the week, a new daily "treat" will be advertised on the website at, and through an electronic newsletter to thousands of consumer contacts, as well as across social media platforms including Facebook and Twitter.

The featured deal or discovery will provide consumers with a printable voucher or coupon code on select opportunities which they can use to purchase that day's deal directly from the participating company or will spotlight a new product launch, opening or service. Unlike similar daily deal sites, no consumer sales are made through the Treat du Jour website, giving participating companies the ability to collect information from new customers while keeping all the profits.

"Treat du Jour provides an avenue for brands to market their new products or specials to an engaged audience for a one time nominal fee," added Metter. "Best of all, brands retain their profits and are not forced to deep discount their product offering. Our audience appreciates a good deal but more importantly, wants to be the first to know about great gourmet and luxury products. Treat du Jour makes the connection between these consumer influences and brands that wish to reach them."

Opportunities are now available for companies to reserve sale dates, with dates available each day of the week including weekends. Date assignments are handled on a first come, first served basis. For more information on Treat du Jour and opportunities to feature your brand or products, please call Jennifer Simmons directly at 619-312-1212 or by email at


Treat du Jour is a unique daily newsletter that features one "gourmet deal or discovery" each day of the week. Previous participants of the San Diego Bay Wine and Food Festival, the Gourmet Experience and several other gourmet, travel, food, wine and spirits oriented brands are offered the opportunity to feature their latest and most exciting products in a special one day deal. Connecting exhibitors with their target consumers, Treat du Jour facilitates this relationship on a daily basis. While primarily adopted to provide consumer communication for existing customers, Treat du Jour is available for any relevant luxury or gourmet brand looking to reach enthusiastic buyers and market influences.
